Odd, linux should have gdbm compiled/installed as ndbm (which cold assumes
exists, being a standard unix lib)...

Damn, I havn't run regression tests for ages :)  I doubt the test db is in
the correct format, I'll have to check it out.  The only db I can mostly
guarantee will compile with 0.2-[45] is ColdCore-2.1.  The main reason
for this is i'm evolving the dump format as well as language syntax.
